I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
We started class with our 10 minutes of independent reading and then briefly discussed good/bad peer review responses. (Peer reviews are due tomorrow by the beginning of class.) Next, we wrapped up vocabulary word introductions and subject verb agreement rules. After that, we used a (admittedly very corny) video to introduce/explain the main concepts of a tragedy/tragic hero. Students have a handout with Aristotle's explanations of the 6 characteristics of a tragic hero, which we used to paraphrase each concept after viewing its explanation on the video. They will need to finish the paraphrase activity by Thursday. At the end of class, we previewed the scene/performance assignment that begins in earnest tomorrow.
Homework: Complete both peer reviews before class tomorrow. Vocabulary quiz moved to Friday, but start studying a little each day now!
